    help Help

    I bought an old pit bike engine and I am having trouble with the clutch, I have never seen a clutch like this to me it looks like a centrifugal clutch but I thought it would have an arm coming from the gear shifter and to the clutch to engage the clutch but mine doesn't. Please help me and tell me what it is and how it works so I can ride the bike properly. I can change gears but it is very rough feeling but that might be how this bike works I don't know, please help.

    Suzuki 50jr piston help

    My 2000 Suzuki 50jr was making a clunking sound and quit. Got a compression gauge was able to only get 30 psi. Here is a pic of piston what's going on here. Checked the rod has slack side to side where the piston came off, does not feel like up and down is bad for slack. Was going to rebuild top end but not sure now what are the thoughts about crank bad? The noise was like a popping sound only under load pick up rear tire no noise. My son starts to ride the popping sound returns. New chain front and rear sprocket. Would the piston make that sound only when under load or would it make popping sound all the time, just trying to narrow it down. Need help my son ready to ride his first dirt bike
  4. Anyone know what the crank should feel like when manually turing it? I'm getting 10 foot pounds of cam/rocker resistance every time I turn the crank with a ratchet. 10 foot pounds, and the plug's out! Is that normal, or is this a serious problem after all? In the past I remember it used to feel like maybe 3 ft. lbs. to turn it with the plug out. I can even feel it's become harder to kick...
  5. Hello, My name is Dan. I recently bought a 2001 yz125. I have been having jetting issues that i cant seem to fix.

I am looking for someone in the Central Jersey area who is willing to help me work on my bike and get it running strong. I have all tools necessary. I would pay $25 dollars per hour. This is completely legitimate. Feel free to text me at 908-448-9639. Located in Central New Jersey

    kx250f God Awful Noise KX250F

    I recently purchased a 2010 KX250F from a friend of mine that had been sitting in his garage for about 5 years. The bike seemed to be in decent shape and the price was right so i picked it up. I went through most of the bike before riding it (air filter, oil, greased all the bearings, adjusted suspension, changed all the fluids, etc) The valves sounded a bit loose so i decided to have a "Buddy of mine" adjust the valves. I get the bike back, go for a ride and the cam chain tensioner falls out while i was riding, luckily i caught it very soon after it happened and it never jumped timing. I put the tensioner back in and continue to ride the rest of the day. as the day goes on the valves sound much looser than they were originally before the adjustment was done, I decided to call it a day and tear the bike down myself. I shim the loose valves and button the bike back up, but now the thing sounds god awful. Straight up clacking coming from the right side of the top end. Since then ive probably had the bike apart and back together 4 or 5 times trying to figure out the problem. Its not the auto decompression valve, every valve is in spec, timing is solid, and the cam chain tensioner is working fine. I'm stumped. anyone have any thoughts?

    Riding Buddy in Arizona

    Here's the deal.. I'm visiting my mom for the next month or so and probably will be coming a couple times a year to visit.. Since I don't live here I don't really have a bike so looking to see of maybe anyone has a spare bike and needs a riding buddy. If i can find something cheap i may willing to pick it up just so i can ride where im here. I'm more than happy to help pay for gas or any other expenses. I have a car and can move around freely and have a bunch of spare time for the next month. I'm also decent with a wrench so willing to help work on your bikes or really anything. I just love riding and need to make some friends here . I ride woods/trails back home where I live in Belize.. I literally ride daily unless the bike is being worked on 7 Little about myself. 26 year old dude. Into sports and pretty much anything outdoors. Hunting fishing shooting guns camping whatever.. I love dirt riding. Rode about a year or two or track when I was younger. Then picked up another bike about a year and a half ago.i ride a yz450f so know what it's like jumping on a stallion... I'm experienced enough not to trash your bike and shouldn't hold u back. And I'm not broke so if I break something I'll pay for it. I understand this sport is expensive and it's a big risk to let some random dude on ur bike. I'm a decent rider for sure. I mean I crash every now and again but I've never seriously injured myself or screwed up a bike. I'm very level headed and know not to go too far out of my comfort zone or ride too far above my skill level. That said; I shouldn't hold u back on the trails or anything like that unless you are keeping her pinned on rev limited the whole time.

    CRACKED CAMSHAFT HOLDERS

    OK so I have a 2013 crf250r jumped time and as I was putting the can holders back on I cracked the left one I ordered new ones and cracked them too. Im looking to buy either the left cam holder or a set. Or looking to buy a 2013 crf250r complete head. And help would be great. And any info is helpful. Thank you for your time
  9. so I'm wondering about buying a 250cc 2 stroke I just turned 15 and weigh about 120lbs and am looking for a dirtbike coming off a Yamaha banshee. I will be mostly riding in the sand dunes but do go up and ride semi technical trails and desert riding. i've heard that a 125 will not have enough power for sand riding. would I be able to hold the bike up being around 5'9-5'10? what would y'all recommend I look for. (not at all considering a 4 stroke because of the costs of rebuilds)
  10. I have a JAILING 2005 125cc Chinese dirt bike I cleaned the carb After it was sitting for 3 years not being ran. I changed the oil fuel lines flushed out the fuel tank with fuel. Fixed ignition being wired in reverse new spark plug and everything. I bike kicks over and starts for about 2 seconds and then dies any suggestions and what u should try? Link to video of Ike trying to start -
  11. ok, first thread, so if i mess up or do something wrong, im also 15 so remember any advice helps, Ive been riding dirt bikes since i was 3, before i even could ride a scooter, and ive always loved riding (sometimes a little too much) but that had always been dirt limited, until the beginning of this year i traded my (moped, which was actually incredibly illegal) as it went close to 70 with all the mods i put on it, for a 79 xl250, it ran, sort of, the guy sprayed gas in the cylinder and showed me it run, and i believed him. When i had gotten it home, the problems began adding up, it wasnt getting spark, the spokes on the front were all really loose, and someone really ****** up the paint job on the tank ( over the original honda stickers i might add) but this wasnt too bad, i saved up worked around my neighborhood and with my money, i got a supertrapp megaphone exhaust pipe ( someone butchered the old one completely) a new carb and airbox (someone took the airbox off and put metal mesh on, not even pods, just a piece of steel mesh over the tube) and a new cdi. This is when i started to realize i had gotten ripped off, first of all, it wasnt even a 250 engine, nor the right year, and there are no id numbers on the engine i can find to determine what year or size it is, so at this point i had blown all my money on parts for a bike that had the wrong engine. I immediately raced to ebay looking for a motor, no such luck, cheapest motor is 350 and its in terrible shape, i look on craigslist, nothing, i look on craigslist again a few hours later, and BOOM 79 xl250 runs & rides no title 300 dollars, perfect dent and scratch free original tank, oem seat, and every light they came with, and only 300 miles on it, im guessing it was kept in a barn, so i talk to the guy and i ask if i payed him 50$ if he would deliver it, and if he had paypal. he doesnt respond, i text him again after school that day "sorry i dont deliver, i sold it a few hours ago" instantly im even more frustrated, as this was exactly what i needed, but i have found another thing now, my neighbor has a 83 xl500 motor that runs and was fully rebuilt, hasnt even been put in a bike since he blew a head gasket on it, i was wondering how hard it would be to put this motor into the xl, i have very little fabricating experience, but my neighbor is a mechanic, he kinda laughed about it when i mentioned it to him, so im wondering, would it really be that difficult, thanks - Landon
  12. so today I was going to go out for a ride, almost got to my buddies house, when the bike died, thought it was maybe out of gas, so i pulled in the clutch and went on reserve. I was still rolling so i popped it up into 3rd to try to roll start it, but no luck. stopped and pulled of to the side to try and kick it. the engine was siezed. this had happened before once and it ran fine after i let it cool down. so i let it sit and got a cup of coffee. i came back out to start her up, but i couldnt find tdc. the kick start would turn and turn but no hard point. it was harder to kick through the cycles and it has a weird squeek sound from the cylinder. any ideas on what happened or what the problem is??? it was running just fine 2 weeks ago i took it out on a 6 hr ride no overheating nothing. i has just been out of service because i cracked the tank in a biff about 3 rides ago.
  13. I am restyling an 05 yz125, I ordered cycra restyle plastics for the bike, and I do not know how to find out the year of the plastics since they're specifically made to fit on my bike. I am so confused on how to get graphics lol if anyone can help that'd be great.
  14. I have a 1990 Suzuki 250 RMX I have just got done with a rebuild after sitting for 2years. i have replaced the stator and ignition coil. the problem this still stumps me I can turn the bike over with a drill and I get a 1/4 inch blue spark but if I try to kick it I get nothing even holding the wire with bare hands . The only thing i haven't replaced is the cdi box and wiring harness from what i can gather either the stator is out of time, bad wires ,or cdi box hopefully someone knows more than me i would rather not drop the almost $500 on a new cdi if that isn't the problem. Hopefully i cant get the info i need thanks

    Blown engine

    I have a xr 200 r its ran like a champ for the past five years but started smoking about a year ago and burning oil ive heard there are tricks such as pouring coke or diesel down the heads and letting it soak in to help solve it smoking is there anything else or would this work thank you.
  16. So, my 2015 Wr450f had a FMF Powercore 4. The bike ran flawlessly, never stalled out and had tons of power. But, the neighbors didn't like how loud it was so I switched back to the stock exhaust with the pea shooter in it. The problem is, it is having lots of trouble starting, and stalls whenever you open the throttle somewhat quickly. I have the competition ECU and tuner, and throttle stop removed. Any ideas on why it runs so poorly with the stock exhaust? Too rich? Too lean? Anybody have their WR running good on the stock exhaust?
  17. I have a Honda crf50f and its been sitting for 6 years. I just got a new carburetor and it's now running, only 1 problem. It wont idle when the choke is on or up position, it will only idle if choke is in the down or off position. Any help on what it could be? Thanks.
  18. Location: Spain - Although I travel to the US often. Dirtbike prices aren't that much different. Weight: 210 pounds/95kg - Have lost 110 pounds/50kg (Random but I feel happy about it since I weighed over 320 pounds) Height: 6 feet 4/2 meters Riding experience: I'm 18 now but used to ride at 10 with a mini Dirt bike. Haven't got a lot of experience and kind of forgot the clutch system but I'm sure I'll pick it up straight away. Was so fun. Riding Area: Mainly around Mud/Mud jumps and Forests. Budget: Would like to spend less than 2k$

    KTM 300 XCW Trouble shooting

    My 2010 KTM 300 XCW started behaving a few rides ago and I have been unable to locate the problem so if anyone could help me out I would be appreciative. So basically the "Mid Range" just disappeared. At low RPM and High RPM the bike is operating just like it use to. However in the middle zone the Power Doesn't seem to be getting transferred to the wheel. The first time I noticed this issue a hard rev seemed to restore it back to normal operating. After ride that the middle range has never returned. There were no changes on anything else in the bike. The spark plug checks out.

    Help Maybe?

    Hey. I just got a 94rmx with a complete rm makeover, but I don't have the tools to fix it yet so I've not ridden yet. I was wondering if anyone has tips about riding. And if anyone has some spare tool they could give a beginner. I'm pretty poor so could be some time till I get them myself. The pics my beaut
  21. My girlfriend and I just purchased two sr170tr bikes online. I put them both together, loctite bolts/screws with blue loctite, changed oil with 10w-40 non synthetic, oiled the air filter and filled them up with premium gas. My bike started after a couple kicks and is keeping idle/running fine. The second bike though has been extremely difficult to kick vs mine. It will occasionally kick but it stops/gets stuck so often you basically break your foot in the process. And when it does kick it has much more resistance in general. This is all based off of comparison with the working sr170tr. After many attempts to start the bike (checking spark plug, making sure wire connections are tight, and 100 difficult kicks) I noticed the manifold intake is cracked. Again this bike is new and never been started before so this was a major bummer... I have nearly zero experience with bikes and dont know how to go about this. Ive emailed the company that sent me the bikes about the broken manifold intake. But scratching my head about the difficult kick start issue. Will the broken intake have anything to do with the difficulty of kicking the engine? Thank you!

    Chain doesn't fit

    I bought a new chain and sprockets for my 04 cr125 and I cant figure out how to make it fit. Its too long so I was going to take a link out but then it'll be too short. Ive moved the adujster blocks from all the way forward to all the way back but it won't work either way. Chain and sprockets are all stock sizes.

    ttr Help! TTR 110 wont shift past 2nd gear

    I just picked up a 2008 ttr110. It had no battery, no key, no starter, anything that was extra and wasnt needed, stripping it bare. I was popping wheelies, slipped and the bike fell. Not a bad fall, but when i got up and drove off, only neutral, first, and second gear were available. When your in second and go to shift it feels like your in forth, where you cant shift up. The bike is semi, And i need help ASAP before i overpay to get it fixed (only place near me charges 89$ an hour) or what i need to fix it. If i have to, i will open up the engine.
